Dubai?s highest court acquits 18 inmates in murder case

Eighteen inmates charged with premeditatedly murdering a fellow inmate in August 2012 were on Monday acquitted by Dubai?s highest court.

The ruling is final.Prosecutors had sought capital punishment for all the accused.

The Courts of First Instance and Appeal had already acquitted the inmates due to the weakness of the evidence and inconsistency in witnesses? statements.
